Simplifying Rational Expressions
posted by mike on .
Can someone PLEASE solve these for me
You need to use parentheses to clarify the menaing of those expressions. For example, if you mean
(4x-12)/4x instead of 4x - (12/4x), then the answer is
4(x-3)/x = 4[1 - (3/x)]
Use similar approach with the others. Dactor the numerators and denominatores, and cancel out common factors.
(4x-12)/4x = 4(x-3)/4x = (x-3)/x
